One of my many hobbies is collecting coins, This may make me sound really really nerdy but you know what I started originally to leave something behind for my kids. With the current round pounds going out of circulation in October it gave me a really good reason to start. And the scary thing is you don’t even realise how many coins (even just British decimal) there is out there. Literally, hundreds, if you think of the ones with individual designs, 50p, £1, £2 and £5 coins I have all the £1 coins which I did rush through and slowly building each of the others to a complete set.
If you are looking at getting started I would recommend getting a nice folder to display them in and start with just a set this will grow very quickly soon you will be getting and checking every one of your family members change too to try and complete the set. Comment below if you’re starting up or a current collector.
I use this album from the Westminister Collection but there is literally 100s you can choose from.
